PRODUCTION ZONE: From a vineyard in the district of Paderno Franciacorta.
VINE AND VINIFICATION: Franciacorta D. 0. C. G. Saten is made from clonal selections of Chardonnay grapes hand-picked into small boxes, with slow pressing of the whole bunches. Fermentation and refinement takes place in small Allier oak barrels. Bottling occurs in March and April and the sparkling process is begun. The bottles are stacked in rooms with a controlled temperature of 12-14°C for at least 36 months. Only then will Franciacorta D.O.C.G. Saten achieve its distinctive smell and taste and its fine perlage.
ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS: Yellow with light golden highlights. Very fine and persistent perlage. An intense bouquet with a mixture of peach, honey and hazelnuts.
